Oldies Collections...& wee update

10 Golden Rules by Dr Nordin Darus

Wee update (sept 28, 2006)
Came back from Terawih prayer at prayer's room in campus last nite. Feel so serene walking through a quiet nite with drizzle in between car park to the doorstep of the room. It was a good break from my four wall of flat.
Was in front of my PC. Had a short chat with a close fren abt happenings. Toward the end of chatting (which quite an interesting one... make me want to go on to understand more what it is all about...as I could have many interpretations to a puzzle post to me...)...I was disturbed by my mobile. My mind was divided into two thots at the same time, with writing and speaking. We ended the chat with salam while I was still talking to another fren abt his bad news.
The call was from an Indian fren migrated to Calgary. He was my ex-project consultant some years back. A father figure (50+) and down to earth person. He always called me at least every forthnight to track on my progress and provide loads of support on emotional ups & down wrt this process. I felt as if I am a child to him. Sometimes I felt embarrass to myself if I didn't make much progress as it should be. I have to admit at time whenever I was terribly down with homesick..I drove myself crazy until I calm down and be rational in my thinking. That is quite normal as a human being.
He called to let me know that his mother passed away and he will be travelling back to India tomorrow via London. My deepest condolence to him and his family. May his mother rest in peace. So nice of him to call to let me know the bad news. That is what fren is all about no matter where we are...we share both happy and sad moments in life..that keeps our friendship stronger...
It must be very hard to be away from family at time like this and not have the opportunity to be at mom's bedside before she left the world. But that is life and the choice that we make...We have to accept all consequences that comes along the way...
Deep in my heart, I always pray to HIM to let me be there if I ever have to face similar situation.
Life goes on...

Le Count & Countess,

TQ for yr revisit.
Song by Zubir Ali tu, my other half send me the CD. One of the song which attract me. Hence bersesuaian dgn Ramadhan, I linked it here from U tube.

TQ for all your encouragement & moral support.Semuga Allah membalasnya.

I frequently visited yr blog to see pic of the cutee's Adeel. So comel. Keep posting more of his pic as he grows up.

Thanks so much on the entry abt AM's reunion mother & son tu as an intro to yr entry. That mean much to me.

May you & family be blessed with tranquility and always been protected by HIM.

Bro. Idham,

Life is full of puzzle. Puzzle might not be a complete set, always missing pieces. But we should make do with what we have.
Macam tu lah agaknya kan..
